With lots of pre-holiday work at the office (and spending what seemed to be hours listening to that Canadian dude talk about the ubiquitous "Bad Day"), I decided to stay late and watch the beginning of the "Pedro Returns" game. It was--somewhat surprisingly--a very classy reception from the Fenway faithful. Then I left the office, because I just didn't want to see what happened next. It's too much for my baseball loyalties to handle. When I can't enjoy a Red Sox 11 game winning streak, life is wrong. So tonight I might bust out of work to go see the Cyclones just so I can root for one side again. (And to check out Cliff Floyd doing a little rehab.)
You know what's even worse? I have both Tom Glavine and Curt Shilling on my fantasy league team. Ugh.
